Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is now recognized as a common chronic disease affecting children and adolescents. This article will review recent advances made in the fields of genetics, epidemiology, gut ecology, and immunology regarding the etiopathogenesis of IBD, with particular emphasis on the contributions made by pediatric studies. Areas where further study of the pediatric age group would be beneficial will be highlighted.
